Trapunto in OLD Quilts
My last blog featured two mid-19th century quilts with two different styles of trapunto .
Below are two more examples of early quilts, made by women who used trapunto in yet more ways!
Boutis ~ Provence, France ~ circa 1850
A wholecloth quilt in which the trapunto IS the design of the quilt.
